Jjimjilbang are bathhouses that play a big part in Korea’s wellness culture, and they are known for sauna facilities that are rejuvenating and invigorating. Cimer Spa provides an upgraded version of jjimjilbang, with infinity pools, virtual spa rooms, and much more. With over 20 unique facilities, this spa in Incheon is not to be missed.

Take photos by the water plaza, which has been modelled after the Piazza San Marco in Venice. The area is brightened with plenty of natural sunlight, and there are many sunbeds on which you can unwind. At night, the plaza is illuminated in purple lights, bringing a whole new atmosphere to the space.

Their cave spa pool is especially designed to resemble a cave. The dim lighting and the high ceiling will immerse you in its calming atmosphere and you’ll feel like time has come to a pause. If you prefer open spaces, have a soak in their heated outdoor spas as you bask under the skies.
Outdoor infinity pool.

There are 2 infinity pools at Cimer Spa. The indoor infinity pool overlooks the water plaza, while the outdoor infinity pool offers an unobstructed view of Incheon city. As Cimer Spa is located near Incheon airport, you’ll be able to watch plane landings from the outdoor infinity pool – a visual treat.

For those who prefer to remain dry, Cimer Spa has many other facilities for you to try out as well. The Sun Tree room has walls made of wood imported from Fukuoka, Japan. This creates a relaxing space where you can take a power nap.

If you’re looking to sweat it out, visit the Salt room or the Amethyst room. Kept at a temperature of 65ºC, both rooms are meant to help you detoxify and revitalise your body. Be sure to not stay too long in the saunas to avoid getting heatstroke. A duration of around 15 minutes should be sufficient.
Amethyst room and Wave Dream room.

Another facility that relies on visual elements to provide a relaxing experience is the Wave Dream room. Using a projector to cast wave-like mood lighting on the ceiling, the Wave Dream room is the perfect place to meditate.
